SOURCE: How to change the boot option in IBM 6578-PBU desktop

if you dont get the option by using the page up/down, or =/- keys or up/down keys when in the bios to alter the first boot device, then your pc was built using the old bios settings in the days before cdrom support was used to install operating systems.

Make sure your replacement hard drive is compatible in geometry (supported by your ThinkPad T20). Check and see if your BIOS setup utility has an auto-detect function.

It would be good if you knew the contents of your replacement drive. You said it might be installed, it might not. If there is nothing on the drive, the ThinkPad should report 'no operating system' or similar message, but it is possible that it might not show anything other than a blinking cursor

HP Mini 5102 notebook w/ XP Home Upgraded to SP3. Lost WiFi.

my guess is lost wifi is the #1 issue world wide on 1billion + devices
after all wifi is problematic.
in vast ways, even radio interference (RFI) or too many neighbors using same wifi channels (move) and they collide.
i use wired, unless on vacation then wifi, mobile.

first off XP is dead and is VIRUS magnet, why run XP?
only 1% or less USA PCs now have it, all others were put in landfill
or upgraded, a fact. (why be on XP?)
you are on the ends of lost era. with XP its 100% not supported
(id put Linux Ubuntu on it ,if I had to use it)

Step by step, that is a tall order. no? and repeats endless on the web. "like the endless story"
ive now idea what wifi chip is there, but DM tells you..
what is best is fresh xp.
It do a F11 , full install on it. get XP back to day 1,
then add SP3.
F11 is HPs, recovery partition fresh load, it goes to day 1. state.
if fresh XP is not fun to do or fails, or ?then....

this MINI came with many optional wifi chips.
2 used in USA, more outside usa.

we cant guess yours, you never said what the DM shows for the chips name.,? Broadcom? Intel.

best way is: (clean XP , LOL)
seen here (in DM delete the whole wifi stack)!
and reload the correct driver seen below, by NAME.
then set up your wifi SSID and password.

have you setup your router yet"? and tested it yet?
for lots of DHCP addresses, mines set for x.x.x.100 to x.x.x.199
that way you have lots of IPs ready at all times.
and set the lease time to max. not 24hr, as some ISP do...
make sure other PCs or Cells can use your routers wifi first
test it. make sure its working, then make this old XP dog work

using 3 steps here , 1-new driver, , 2-no virus(hopeless in XP)
then your 3- the correct login credentials. (SSID+PW)

here is a huge hint
if you go to that link above.
the open software-solution
then get APP called SOFTPAQ (11th down)
this is the main driver engine.
it looks at your PC ,scans it and tells you all drivers
that are missing , wrong or bad. Rev. A

When my computer is turned on it shows the blue login page, when i click on the login icon, it goes to log-in but logs out automatically by itself.

Hello jwbandit402,

Try booting the computer into "Safe Mode" by pressing the F8 key at startup and see if it will continue with the login process. If not try performing a "Repair Installation" with your Windows Install disc to repair any corrupted system files that may be keeping you from logging in.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to leave feedback. Thank you.
